            Leggett And Platt ShipShape Adjustable Base Review

            The Leggett and Platt ShipShape adjustable bed comes complete with the accompanying bed frame packaged together with the bed base. For a decent fair price on the lower end of the market range, the ShipShape adjustable base surely does make the cut clean and fair, it doesn’t promise sophisticated luxury like the higher end brands for which you’d equally have to pay much more, but it does transform your bedroom comfort, one degree at a time.

            The lack of the ‘Wallhugger’ feature that makes us discourage you from buying a ShipShape. Beds without the Wallhugger feature move away from the headboard and the night stand when you assume a ‘sitting position’. The problem with that is that if you want to get something on your nightstand, you are going to have to reach back awkwardly.

            However, to get detail knowledge about the product it is better to check out the product details and overall customer review.


            Leggett and Platt ShipShape Adjustable Queen Base has technologies that not only meets the ends, but also resolves the future issues. It is perfect for people with spine alignment troubles and back problems.

            Therefore, ShipShape™ is the ultra-lite flexible power base that allows you to customize your mattress sets. Modernize the most used piece of furniture, while rejuvenating your life. Transform your flat mattress to get more from your night AND day! Personalize the way you live in bed; read, work, watch TV, eat…even sleep! Rediscover wellness and bedroom activity.

            I hope this review would help you decide on what brand to settle for when it comes to mattress.
